I made a sculpture for a friend recently, and now that he has received it, I’ll post it here to share with you. This time, I did a little wire dachshund. Emphasis on little…this is one of the smallest sculptures I’ve done. It is made from steel wire. I think dachshunds are so funny and adorable and had a great time trying to capture their whimsical shape and look in wire.
– Made almost entirely with 17 gauge steel fencing wire…some finer craft wire was used sparingly.
– Assorted pliers and cutters used, as well as a vice
– Measures 7 inches long x 3 inches high x 2 inches wide
Next up is a commission piece…I’ve been hired to do a scratchboard for a local nursing home. It will be very, very large. It will be, in fact, 3 x 3 feet in size. Whew! It will take a lot of work and time. Should be fun though; I’ll be posting my progress here on my blog along the way. I hope you’ll join me for the journey. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed seeing this little Dachshund. Thanks for looking!
